Top Ten Pokemon Shippings

The Top Ten

1 Ash and Serena

Nowadays we see people sharing their opinions here and especially screaming out, that Ash and Serena are meant to be for one another. And I personally think this is true. Like, hello! It's rather special don't you think, that really, after such a long time from meeting in childhood, Serena still remembered Ash and had feelings for him? Don't comment badly on this - it's true because after that incident Serena never saw Ash again, or knew his name, until she was a teenager and saw him in the middle of a Pokemon battle. I kinda liked the idea of downright, sharp-tongued Iris to be with solid, hard-working Ash, because it's rather funny, but honestly I think Ash and Serena are better together. And really, Ash only argued with her once, and Serena is always kind and helpful to him. Iris is really funny with Ash, in my opinion, but she's too hard with Ash and argues with him. Dawn? Oh, she's completely marvellous and is like Ash's female clone but really she's a bit hardheaded and rather ...more

I LOVE this pairing. For the first time we have a girl who has a canon crush on Ash (Misty was implied to like Ash mostly for the 4Kids dub, in the Japanese dub it was slightly implied). But a lot of people bash Serena's crush on Ash saying she's obsessed with him (Apparently forgetting Misty was far more possessive of Ash than Serena ever has been). Recent episodes have shown that Serena's love for Ash is the real deal, she knows him well enough to know when he's not being himself and pull him out of a funk accordingly. Serena appears to be closer than Ash than the rest of the Pokegirls, truth be told he seems to treat her better than he did the others. Ash has shown subtle hints of maybe liking her back such as: consistently putting what she wants above what he wants. Ash has established himself as someone who doesn't like to do feminine like things (clothes shopping, or dancing) and Ash consistently agreed with Serena's request of going to clothing/Jewelry stores, he hates dancing ...more

Best ship in my opinion and why the hell do other shipper come and give arrogant comment, can't you all just accept defeat, sorry to say but no amourshipper are arrogant, you people just go around and make up stuff saying how arrogant is amourshipper. I have never scene any amour going to other shipping videos, pics and comment how bad is misty, may, dawn and iris are but you people just can't be happy and let other people be happy, going to all amourshipping videos and comment how sick or bad this couple are or how worst is Serena, Sorry to say but you people really need to stop those stupid acts it's annoys lot of people, to anti amourshipper it's true you have your opinion but in your opinion it has no meaning cause your hate reason is so dumb like she hates her which Pokemon fan will believe that dumb everyone watched xy and saw how much she loved her Pokemon and so what she always cares about ash, there is nothing wrong in it even though it's a kid show it known as anime and most ...more

They made for each other

2 Ash and Misty

The only person who Ash actually likes or has liked is Misty. Ash just never acted attracted towards anyone else. Sure, it may be hidden, but there are many moments low-key showing they like each other. All the other Ash related ones are one sided, or even no sided. They also have the most comparable personalities, both are rash, somewhat mean to each other, but both secretly care about one another a lot, and both actually train Pokemon. The other girls are either too girly, think they are better than anyone, or are just his friend.

It makes me sad to see a lot of people like these kind of shippings where one is rarely supportive of their 'friend,' and all both do is argue and make things worse for each other. Yes, arguing is caring or whatever blablabla... and fight like a married couple whatever. But even married couples have good moments & show can get through their arguments by being closer than before. Not ash & misty. They argue, and both need Brock (and Tracy) to help stop them arguing. I'm sorry, but how would that make any kind of 'good' relationship? The answer is, it honestly wouldn't. I can see why the divorce rate nowadays is so high, if people really think that relationships like ash & misty could honestly work out at all.

I know that Serena literally has a crush on Ash, but it's also so obvious that Misty and Ash should be together. I mean, seriously. She follows Ash on his quest to become a Pokemon master for no reason! Please don't say that Serena will be with Ash. I disagree completely.

ASH AND MISTY!

3 May and Drew

I've seen almost every episode of Pokemon and I have to say that these two have the most chemistry, while they have their fights occasionally they still look out for each other and in my opinion come the closest to being canon from a lot of the popular ships

Yes! I support Ash and Misty, but this is good, too, and to be honest, this one is more likely.

How can you not love this ship! Everything about it is great! I hope they'll make a series for May in Johto. It's obvious that they both like each other and blush in front of each other!

Drew might be a bit like Kyubi in Yo kai Watch when Kyubi was trying to attract Katie Forester - Kyubi also gave Katie roses like Drew gave May. But unlike Kyubi, Drew never gave roses to May's friends, not even Brianna who had a crush on him!

4 Ash and Dawn

Ash and dawn are just made for each other... Their friendship is so real... And dawn had her own goals in life rather than just travelling with ash... Ash has learnt so much with dawn... Those two are just the perfect couple... Dawn is the only female character in the pokemon series who has a central character just like ash... This clearly shows how important dawn was for ash... Also he has saved dawn so many times that one can not even count. Their chemistry is the thing which I loved the most about the diamond and pearl season... Also we can see that whenever Dawn has an option to chose between Ash and any other boy, she has always chosen Ash... She is just like Ash and shares an informal relationship with her. Dawn's piplup's reference shows that how important dawn is for him... And since they are just like each other the understand each other the most... Even Cynthia, the sinnoh champ knows that how important they are for each other... I just want this ship to be fixed permanently ...more

I love Ash and Dawn together! They are so cute together! They even had their own song! They should be together forever and ever! I don't know why people keep saying Ash and Dawn are more like siblings than lovers?! I personally think that Ash and Dawn is one true pairing and to be together! I don't know why others like and prefer Ash and Serena together. Ash and Serena's shipping is just too boring for me. I would always ship Ash and Dawn together even if nobody liked it! Ash and Dawn should be together in end instead of Ash and Serena be together. Ash and Dawn is my otp! Ash and Dawn together for the win!

"Dawn is not supposed to be with Paul or Kenny, they're not her type. Misty is too possessive and Serena is not ash's type. Ash was much closer with Dawn. They high five, Dawn cheered for ash in a cheerleader costume with her Pokémon. They have each other's back more. They are definitely much closer. Ash put all of his friend's needs before his, so that doesn't make Serena special at all. Serena is thinking of ash all the time and is trying to get ash to love her but it's definitely one sided while ash thinks of Serena as a friend and that's it, that's their relationship, strictly just friends no matter how much Serena wants to be more than friends. Dawn and ash have that relationship where there's more contact, support both ways and that bond that can never be broken. Dawn returned in the show later and ash was very happy to see her. Dawn was very emotional when ash left while Serena didn't. Clearly, Dawn's feelings for ash are much stronger than Serena's feelings for ash. When ...more

Ash and Dawn are just so cute together! They make such a great couple. And they never fail supporting each other or cheering each other on. They are just made for each other. They are my favourite couple! If I could vote this shipping a second time...I woul have done it at this instant! My favourite couple! 💝❤💘

5 Ash and May

I do not know why I like this couple so much but it is my favorite. I like Ash and Serena too but I do not know the way Ash takes care of May is so sweet and he saved her a lot of times. Best couple in my opinion.

Why is this shipping always so overlooked? I mean they have a lot in common and even their Pokemon are relatively the same. They shared great chemistry and she's hot.

I like this shipping and actually, so does Max. He likes seeing May and Ash together. When I first saw May I thought she was Ash's crush (sorry if this sounds stupid).

I love this shipping

6 Dawn and Kenny

But in the anime dawn rejects kenny

Kenny got friendzoned

This ship is completely one sided. Kenny likes Dawn, but Dawn does not like Kenny back. Kenny was constantly a dick to Dawn. And Dawn even rejected Kenny and chose Ash over Kenny. - Jackster

Kenny and Dawn is an great ship. of course there are other ships but this is really great! Although Kenny likes Dawn,when he beat Ash in the battle,he did not force Dawn to go on the journey with him as he knows how much cheering for Ash means to Dawn. Kenny also likes to tease Dawn to a certain extent and he watches all of Dawn performance. He really cares about Dawn and will always cheer her up when she is sad.

Dawn congulates Kenny even if she loses the competition and she also an very great friend to Kenny. if she does not like Kenny or does not care about his feeling,she won even hesistated to reject him straightaway and instead she is kind enough to leave an sweet note to him.

7 Jessie and James

I don't get why they're not more popular, they're the ones with the most chemistry and they really care about each other. Rocketshipping is so painfully underrated. But I think I know why and that's because the new audience of each generations are mainly children and they are less likely to understand grown up characters. I've shipped these two since the beginning and my friends didn't get it back then, when they got older they understood what I meant. - Trivona

Deserves to be higher. The only pairing among the main characters I can take seriously, Ash and most of his friends are too young and the younger you are the more likely are breakups.

This is so underrated. Why do people like those unrealistic Ash pairings? He's a kid, his female friends are kids. I find it disturbing how people ship kids so seriously, when the actual adult shippings are underrated.

Shipped

8 Misty and Tracey

Misty seems way more tolerable with Tracey than she ever was with Ash and seems to like to hangout with him as seen in the Chronicles and the last episode of BW. Plus he gave her a Azurill and helps her out like when she needed more badges. So I can see a healthy relationship starting here

I think there may be something between these two they got along well

This is my actual OTP.

Orangeshipping is my all time favorite ship in this series. Tracey X Misty in Chronicles is so adorable

9 Ash and Iris

What WHY is this on the 42th spot? Oh well, no matter what people think, Negaishipping is my favorite ship from the animated series. Why? Because Iris and Ash complement each other in an unique way I haven't seen in the series before. They both ADORE pokemon, set their friends before anything else, love playing around, are adventurous and love stuffing their faces with food. Yeah I know Serena has a crush on Ash, but that's pretty much it. Iris doesn't out Ash on such a highpedestal and she point out his flaws so he can improve. Ash isn't perfect, and Iris know this. They both have a long way to go as trainers, but if you gave them time to mature and grow, they could achieve greatness.

This one is my favourite pairing for Ash (the dummy)! I like how subtle it is and that it doesn't try to shove it in your face. Heck it may not even be THAT canon. That's what I like about it!

Not likely. Shippers like their personalities apart.

Not likely? personalities apart? have you even watched BW? They are quite similar and even Cilan (a pokemon sommelier) points this out many times

The Contenders

11 Dawn and Paul

AWFUL SHIPPING! Why is this in the top ten? Not only did Paul & Ash have more positive conversations (which is saying something), but they barley communicated at all

Why do people ship this! Dawn clearly doesn't like Paul at all so this ship doesn't make sense.

This ship is so overrated. These characters have barely made contact.

Screw you it's a good ship

12 Cilan and Iris

Cilan is too awesome to have a girlfriend. Need I say more? Also, 5 year age gap. - RiverClanRocks

Cute ship in my opinion. Too bad it doesn't get much support

This is good. Its nice and sweet they protect each other from their own fears.

It's perfect. I got nothing bad to say.

13 Conway and Dawn

Ha! I completely forgot about Conway! I should've put this on the list originally haha. - itz_izzy

They worked so well together in the Tag Battle contest <3

In the battle tournament when Conway wasn’t being so creepy, she seemed to really enjoy his company & enjoy talking to him. Too bad he’s mostly creepy majority of the time...

14 Cheren and Bianca

They are just so cute together and they could balance each other out well

15 Clemont and Korrina

Voting to comment.
1. Age gap: Clemont's about 13 and Korrina is somewhere between the ages of 18 and 22.
2. No signs of a romantic relationship: Just because Korrina told Clemont about her past doesn't mean a romantic relationship,
3. Clemont is too awesome to have a girlfriend, - RiverClanRocks

Their the same age dumbass korrina isn't anywhere near 18

That one episode where Korrina tells Clemont about her past made me really like this pair

Why Serena would be a better shipping with Clemont than Korrina:
1. AGE GAP
Clemont's about 22 and Korrina's about 15.
2. THEY'RE JUST FRIENDS
The anime even said so.
3. BONNIE OBVIOUSLY WANTS SERENA TO MARRY CLEMONT AND BECOME HER SISTER.
So do I. But she fell for Ash, who has been kissed by EIGHT OTHER GIRLS, and I'm sure Ash will tell Serena that she's the most retarded person he ever went with and Clemont would comfort her. Then Serena would realize that Ash is nothing for her love life. Clemont is "the one".
See what I mean? I think Geekchic, Poke, Kalosstarter, and even Gary & Dawn.

16 Gary and Ash

Literally Ash is so gay, he doesn't even consider his female friends as potentially more. Also Gary gets Ash going more than anyone else...and do I need to mention the similar reaction when hearing Gary's name as Brock has to Prof Ivy coincidence I think not. Also the original Japanese hints at Gary and Ash liking each other a lot more

My favorite! Ash looks cuter with a boy than with a girl. He will never truly LOVE any girl. Sure almost every girl has a crush on him, but he really should meet up with Gary again.

This is one of my favorite ships of all time!

yes

17 Ash and Angie

Oh I love this ship! I can't believe how low it is!

Ash basically said he'd die for her! They bettered each other!

18 Bonnie and Max

Well. I saw a picture that Bonnie kissed Max and good they're the youngest couple I seen yet. Yep! I like this they are so cute together!

They look cute together. Best youngest couple in the series

I like this one! It's so cute! They ate so perfect!

PUT IT IN the TOP 10 - TherealSlim_Shady

19 Calem and Serena

They look cute together, and they're NOT an anime ship like almost every other ship on this list. And Calem is much better than Ash.

How could you not love this ship is better than amour

People say he/she friend-zoned you I didn't see that at least with Serena she seemed real interested in Calem

Calum is you

20 Clemont and Serena

Nah, Clemont deserves better. I don't really like Serena.

I don't really think they suit

A nerd are you serious!

Serena got wombo comboed. Oh. Oh. Oh..oh! OH! OOOH!
